I ordered Feb 1st, didn't deliver till June! I totally understand how tough the wait is.
After looking at how yours is optioned, ours will be nearly identical except with the 4 banger. I’m also sticking with the stock rims because I really like their look, but swapping out for 35’s.

So, to help with my decision making, if anyone has a 2 door JL Rubicon with a 2 - 3 1/2” lift, stock rubicon rims, and 35-37” tires, and would be willing to post some pics, I’d love to see them.
Soooo...since no one ever posted exactly what I was looking for (see quote from original post), I decided to go for it, order it, and create it myself. Picked her up last week. Love this Jeep!

Yes it is the Mopar lift. It has been a very pleasant surprise after all the horror stories I’ve read on this forum. I had pretty much resigned myself to at least needing upgrade the track bar and LCA’s, but I’m not jumping the gun yet. It feels different. than before the lift, as any lifted rig does, but drives and rides every bit as good.

There were a couple of notable outcomes from the lift that I’d consider positive that some might not...I did NOT get as much lift as I expected and had seen reported on this forum. The total lift with the MOPAR lift plus the 35” tires (BFG KO2 315/70/17) was 2 1/2” in the front and 3 3/8” in the back. These measurements were taken at the fenders and the bumpers. This accomplished 2 things...more lift in the back corrected some of the 2 door’s natural squat. Plus the modest lift I got out of the front seems to have eliminated the immediate need to have an adjustable track bar to correct the geometry.

We’ve only had it a week so this is all new but so far the drivability compares very favorably with my other lifted 4x4’s.
